Alex Pietrangelo’s advanced stats are troubling compared to league’s best

Alex Pietrangelo contributed 46 points in 81 games for the Blues last season. Based on that statistic alone, you might be under the impression Pietrangelo was deserving of his $5.5 million he earned in 2014-15. The problem is that when you dig a bit deeper, or when you watch enough Blues games, you start to notice that Pietrangelo actually struggled to live up to his cap hit. Pietrangelo’s...

Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko need to play together

Back in May, after the St. Louis Blues bowed out of the playoffs in a disappointing first round loss to the Minnesota Wild, the first thing that came out of my mouth was a dramatic fix for next season.
